's going to have an impact on law enforcement. we're going to be looking at f.b.i. agents, d.e.a. agents, a.t.f. agents who are going to be furloughed and federal prosecutors who are not going to be working with you all on task forces and bringing cases. there are a whole variety of things that are going to happen as a result of sequestration. and that's why i called on in my prepared remarks for congress to resolve this as quickly as possible. >> america's day begins in guam and our questions will attendant with attorney general capadas. >> and we have been talking about your visit to the war museum there and still remember how long you stayed there and appreciated your visit. and spending some money, i think. >> not to have a commercial. but if you are in guam or in the south pacific, it is something to see this world war ii museum. it is something that is -- it's technologically done but extremely moving and informative place. it's really something to see. >> and kind after follow-on to maine's questions, the volcker grants, and i think how the department of justice allocates these cuts,
concerned with privacy have complained for a while that the law has not kept pace with technology and the government can obtain, store, and access increasing amounts of data about our daily lives. privacy is one of the issues that is difficult to get people to care about. i was reading an article that compares the privacy damage to environment in the sense that it happens little by little and each erosion does not seem to matter that much. at the end of the day, it may add up to a loss of privacy that is unacceptable in our democracy. the question is, are we there yet? it seems like we have reached an inflection point about privacy. more people are concerned about the issue. we could see it covered in the press more. a computing factor was the petraeus affair about for which this event is case. it seems like in the case, the fbi did have warrant. the investigation made people realize that e-mails were not that private. privacy advocates took advantage of that moment to put forth the concerns they had talked about for years. two other things that happened over the last year, which
presidents, because if they do, they will have committed an act of murder. noncombatants under the law of war are protected, not subject to being killed randomly. so to suggest that the president won't answer that question somehow legitimizes that the drone program is going to result in being used against anybody in this room having a cup of coffee, to me, cheapens the debate and is something not worthy of -- mr. mccain: could i ask my colleague a question, especially on that subject? a lot of our friends, particularly senator paul and others, pride themselves on their strict adherence to the constitution and the decisions of the supreme court. isn't it true that as a result of an attack on long island during world war ii that an american citizen, among others, was captured and hung on american soil? and the united states supreme court upheld that execution because that individual was an enemy combatant? is that established without a doubt? the fact that these are enemy combatants, and no matter where they are, they are subject to the -- to the form of justice as the terrorist in world war ii
for the moment on gun violence prevention. as a law enforcement professional, not just as attorney general, but one who has been a judge and prosecutor, this whole idea of better enforcement of existing laws is one we both agree ought to be the goal, and it always is for any prosecutor. and yet enforcement of some of these laws is impeded by gaps in those laws, such as the absence of akron checks on firearms, which now in able about 40% of all firearm purchases to go without any check whatsoever. you would agree with that, wouldn't you? >> yet. there are loopholes. has become to describe them, that make the enforcement of existing laws extremely difficult and render those existing laws not nearly as effective as they might otherwise be. >> and those laws now prohibit purchases of firearms by categories of people, convicted felons, fugitives, drug addicts and abusers, and domestic violence abusers. purchases on firearms and ammunition, both firearms and ammunition. right now there's no background check as to purchases of ammunition, none whatsoever. and as a matter of common sense as well a
on the floor. for decades, u.s. courts have allowed law enforcement to conduct aerial surveillance without a warrant. this is that sort of open spaces doctrine. i'm not saying it makes it right but the government has been doing it for decades. some of the courts have apparently ruled that what a person does in the open, even behind a back yard fence, can be seen from a passing airplane and is not protected by privacy laws. you know, i don't think i agree with that. if you're swimming in your pool in your back yard, if you're in your hot tub in your back yard, just because we have the technology to be able to see you in your hot tub, does that really mean they have a right to look at what you are doing in your back yard, so i don't really accept that. i think it has been abused and something that really we should be fighting against the surveillance state. advocates say predators are simply more effective than other planes. flying out of earshot and out of sight, a predator bee can watch a target for 20 hours nonstop, far longer than any police helicopter or manned aircraft. i would say the
or be in a position to consider this comprehensive response to our law enforcement that has already told us what they need. law enforcement does not take a partisan view in this. they just take a view what's going to help law enforcement, what's going to help us be safer. i think the senator and i came in from that position. thursday, the senate judiciary committee will continue our consideration of four measures to reduce gun violence. this issue, gun trafficking, straw purchases, was before the committee. what i am going to do is take my original trafficking bill, and i would tell the senators who are cosponsors and amend it with a text of the bipartisan compromise. i believe it approved the language already pending before the committee, provisions laid out in legislation are focused, they are commonsense remedies, and our bill does not affect lawful purchases from federal firearms licenseees, does not alter their rights and responsibilities, but our bill was drafted to request law enforcement to give needed tools to fight against the drug cartels, other criminals who threaten our communities.
're tightening the penalties, and giving 25 years in prison and making it harsh for anyone who breaks this law. a number of republicans objected to it because they object to any sort of gun control and they don't believe this is a problem. this moves this particular pill to the full senate for cars. what is going to happen next is difficult, that is the negotiations that fall over a bipartisan effort to have background checks. this was led by senator schumer. at one point it looked like he would get the support of republican senator coburn. those fell apart. what schumer is doing he's introducing his original bill, this is a vehicle in case they're able to restart the negotiations over the background check and agree on language that will provide a vehicle on the senate floor. all four measures are expected to pass if only because democrats have a majority on the committee. and then the big key will be what happens once these get to the senate floor? will they all be tied into one bill? will they be voted separately which might increase chances of smaller pieces passing but may decrease on some
americans. >> and why is obama administration trying usama bin laden's son-in-law? a high threat terrorist suspect in a u.s. court? we'll debate it. >> laura: caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. and the factor begins right now. >> laura: hi, everyone. i'm laura ingraham in for bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. filibuster envy. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. it's been fascinating to see the reaction to senator rand paul's filibuster of the john brennan nomination. with the principled persuasive argument with the use of drones on american soil, he drew support from people across the political spectrum from jon stewart to mitch mcconnell, from the aclu, to ted cruise, his filibuster made for some strange bed follows. but, of course, not everybody was happy. is that snarkers calling paul's stance weird and crazy. but what's surprising is that two g.o.p. senators lindsey graham and john mccain launched their own drone strike against paul. >> we have done, i think, a disservice to a lot of americans by making them believe that somehow they a

to the law, conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction or other terrorism related cases, but through the sting operations, identify them first. it's easy to be empathetic to the fbi's view, and i try to talk about it in the book which is that if you're a case agent, and you have a guy on tape saying, you know, i want to bomb the subway system, you don't want to be the guy who says let's ignore him, and then six months later, he commits an act of terrorism. it's easy to understand why the fbi pursues these cases, but what i put out in the book is that there has yet to be an example of someone on their own capable of terrorism, someone who is a loud mouth, do you want have weapon, and meeting an operative and says, hey, here's a bomb. the only people providing the capacity is actually the fbi. you know, these sting operations are an evolution of drug stings. you've seen where, you know, in the movies, a guy has an empty briefcase, and two people believe there's cocaine inside, hand over the money, and hand over the briefcase, they open it, it's empty, they rush in and arrest the person
fell by two ticks: funeral service for hugo chavez. former al qaeda spokesman usama bin laden's son-in-law pleaded not guilty today to terrorist charges in a courthouse just blocks from the old world trade center. and that's the "the fox report's" top five. and on this day in 1971, the boxing legend mohammed ali took on heavyweight champ joe frazier for the first time in what became known as the fight of the century. both men stepped into the ring undefeated. for ali's first bought in three and a half years. it came with enormous hype for the day. but by the 8th round frazier held a huge lead and handed a last round blow knocking the people's champ to the canvas. smoking joe won by unanimous decision and kept his title. he and ali would fight ups twice more in their careers. ali won both of those. the heavyweight rivals first duped it out 42 years ago today. and now you know the news for this friday, march the 8th, 2013. i'm shepard smith. i will see you monday from rome. as they begin to pick a pope, the team and i have heading out tomorrow hope you have a great weekend. the factor coming
in american law enforcement history. >> if you distrust the government, waco is going to be symbolic to a lot of people of what they really fear. >> i'm talking to you, somebody's going to get hurt. >> if he asks god for some kind of sign and god gives it, what does that mean? >> every saturday morning clive doyle and sheila martin study the bible. >> behold, the lord god will come with a strong arm. >> they are about all that's left in waco of the branch davidians, an offshoot of the seventh day adventist church. the religious community went back generations. it even issued its own currency during the great depression. david koresh came to the faith and its texas commune in 1981. who was he back then, to you? >> just a bum. >> former branch davidian kathy jones and her husband david had seen religious visionaries come and go. >> god speaks to me. >> this time was different. koresh would preach his way to power. >> i remember in the beginning, everybody was like, oh, he's crazy. he's this and that. i mean, that's all i heard. all of a sudden people were like, well, we're listening to him. he
measure's guns. would they love them too much. bulls. ridiculous laws pop up around the united states. whether it be a seven round limit going into the gun three day waiting period. other things called the narc laws. if you don't tell on somebody else in your office place that has a gun you yourself can be fired. these are these crazy laws. this is one more step to try to limit the use of gun control in this country. >> also the idea of this law, too. is to send a message. the message is that people that purchase ammunition has something wrong with. they they are angry and need therapy. >> therapy. if you use the same rationale that they are going to use with gun control to other things in life. like when you turn 16, more than likely you are going to get a speeding ticket at some point in your life. put you in defensive driving school and put you saturdays. 21 get your first drink or buy your first bottle of wine. might become alcoholic. put new alcoholic's anonymous. considering that cardiovascular disease is the number one. when you go to buy your first stick of butter weight loss
years off from writing a budget which of course is their lawful duty. i think there is not enough print sometimes dedicated to imnovemberable democrats when they're, when they happen to be doing nothing. maybe this will help that. bill: let me put a fine point what he said. jerry, you need to understand, referring to senator moran, we're not going to do anything until after the election. bob, why would that be? >> for a couple reasons. first of all, this was during the time of the budget control act where they set up the super-committee from which all things were going to spring. you couldn't move anything having to do with finances until that committee made a decision or didn't make a decision as it turns out. that's one. and two, in when you move up to election year, presidential election year particularly, nobody does anything that will upset the applecart. bill: but mary katherine's point is you have your priorities. if you want to pursue something like confirmation of jack lew you can get that done in one afternoon. >> that's right. bill: the other big stuff when you have to show y
they would know that -- >> pretty sure isn't good enough a court of law. >> caller: well, i'm pretty sure they wouldn't do this without knowing the full consequences -- >> stephanie: well, we were talking about [ inaudible ]. you are right, it's a tough, but this guy -- >> caller: but he defected. he renounced his citizenship. these are not rights that are guarantees to you, regardless no matter what. eventually you come to a point where you give up these rights. >> but sometimes you get the wrong guy, and do we want to live in a country like that? >> caller: it could happen, but i'm just saying you know, i just believe in the greater -- you know, in the end -- i -- i just don't think that this hypothetical situation would really come true first of all, and i think people are just really overreacting. >> stephanie: i'm with you on that. jim you were even saying maybe we should have brought osama bin laden to trial -- you know what i'm fine. >> caller: even the guy that we executed and accidentally killed his 16-year-old son, it was like this guy renounced his citizensh
martin came to the 77-acre compound in 1985. her husband, wayne, was a harvard law graduate. they brought their six children. >> i thought at first it was going to be a sunny day. just walk into the kingdom one day, bring my family, and we'll live forever through eternity, believing in the scriptures and doing the things god wanted. >> when it comes to religious matters, you're always learning. >> reporter: clive doyle came to waco on his way from australia to israel. he ultimately stayed to study scripture with david koresh. >> as his message developed, we came to see him as more than just a prophet. >> reporter: a messiah. >> right. manifestation of god in the flesh. >> reporter: koresh added a twist to his message in 1989, declaring only he could have sex. all the other branch davidian men would be celibate, even married men. koresh, however, could have multiple wives. in this home video that he would later send to federal agents during the siege -- >> i'm not a mean person. >> no, no. >> reporter: -- koresh linked his blend of spirituality and sex with the purity of the garden of eden
and that if we needed to deal with the terrorist threat in the united states, we would use local law enforcement or the fbi or other means to deal with the threat. >> let me play what the attorney general had to say. senator paul said i'm not going to halt the nomination if i get a detect answer. eric holder did during a senate he hearing this morning. here is what the attorney general said. >> what i said in the letter was that the government has no intention to carry out any drone strikes in the united states. it's hard for me to imagine a situation in which that would occur. we have within the united states, the ability to use our law enforcement capacity. the use of drones is from my perspective, something that is entirely, entirely hypothetical. >> entirely hypothetical and hard for me to imagine. i understand the point those seem to say no, but it's not a one word answer. >> i'm glad to hear from tommy that the president has ruled this out. i was almost relieved to hear he said later in the hering he thought the use of a drone would be inappropriate. we don't know if the obama administrati
be is that whitey brought the fbi the nation's top law enforcement to its knees. he harnessed the power of the fbi on his behalf and that is what gave him his rise to power and his longevity and no one else in this underworld has that claim to fame so to speak. that is his historic marker that we should never forget because he compromised the fbi for so many years. it's a subject and a topic we went deep on and check for 20 years which whitey had his so called holy alliance with the fbi we refer to as the black mass years and we have taken those and in the new book whitey we have put them in the larger context, the full arc of his long life and getting into the project to finance the research for the past year or so got away we were astonished by how much new material and information we were able to uncover and work with in trying to put together the long life of whitey taking a look at the making of the monster, the house and the body of whitey. these are things when you read him you are going to be reading about whether it is tracing the family, the history of the family backed off your land for
starts january. but there are look-back procedures in the law that are affecting the way the employers hire their staff today. there are a lot of effects of obamacare that we are starting to see and the house, i expect, will have extensive oversight hearings on the devastating impact of this law and the american people. >> [inaudible] >> we'll look at them when we get there. >> will that go into the budget? >> i don't know that. last one. >> have you worked out a schedule when it comes to conference? >> i'm not -- the president talked about coming up and having a conversation with our members. i'm not sure when that conversation will be. as you know, he is getting ready to empark on a trip to the middle east and that's one of the issues he'll want to cover. but i'm sure the issue of sequestration will come up as well. we are going to welcome the president to come up and talk to our members and i'm looking forward to it. >> wednesday morning? >> when we are ready to announce it, you'll know.

. >> we are learning more about how the united states caught the son-in-law of bin laden. the 47-year-old plead not guilty in a manhattan court yesterday to the charge of conspiracy to kill americans. he said little beyond a few one word replies. investigators say the united states had been tracking him even before 9/11 1. officials say they believe that he had been hiding in iran and turkey. he was being deported when authorities intercepted him in jordon last week and then brought him to the united states. >>> a man has pleaded not guilty to charges of trying to blow up an oakland bank with a car bomb. the 28-year-old is charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction. the bomb was a fake provided by undercover agents. his lawyer said his client has mental illness but is still competent to stand trial. he is due back in court next movement. >> the driver accused of killing a student pleaded not guilty to manslaughter and dui charges. the 28-year-old appeared in court yesterday. he is a accused of hitting and killing a teen as she crossed the road. prosecutors say she di

my relatives in newark for a while. and i was able to go to rutgers law school the next year because of a national defense student loan. so i'm running, because of the opportunities that i had -- i'm under no illusion, if i grew up now into the circumstances that i was born into, i wouldn't be here as a state senator running for the governor of new jersey. >> senator, one of the local papers said you should not be written off, and having just heard your introductory remarks of this campaign, i don't think you can be written off in new jersey. and they said, the local papers said that you are the anti-christie. how do you see yourself as the anti-christie? >> well, you know, i see myself as, there's certainly a stark contrast between myself and governor christie. governor christie supports. his idea of jump-starting the economy is to propose a trickle-down income tax cut last area. and me and his budget addressed this year, he stated his support for it again. i support property tax cuts for everyone else. you know, he coddles millionaires while the rest of new jerseyans are st

an analogy to the use of torture. there are american laws and international laws against the use of torture. now, george bush said that he could override that, right, as president. and he could use torture because he believes we got good information. he violated international law and was never held responsible for it. president obama disagrees with president bush on torture but president obama does believe his executive authority gives him an unlimited ability to use drones as killing machines overseas and now we know in the united states of america. and i think that pushes the authorization too far as well. >> absolutely. >> bill: those are all of the questions that have not been answered. look, there are always going to be wars. there are always going to be drones, now we know. and i'm not saying ban drones, shoot, put them all down and never use them again. but there has to be some guiding policy on when the use of a drone is acceptable and when its's not for what purpose against whom and that policy i believe also should be made by congress, not the president of the united states. we do
immigration system that actions have consequences. in this case that those who violated the laws can remain but cannot obtain the cherished fruits of citizenship. to do otherwise would signal once again that people who circumvent the system can still obtain the full benefits of american citizenship. it must be a basic prerequisite for citizenship to respect the rule of law. now, that's a far cry from what he said last year, as late as last summer, presumably when he was writing this book, when he was seen as one of his party's most progressive voices on immigration. listen to what he told charlie rose back in june. >> you have to deal with this issue. you can't ignore it, and so either a path to citizenship, which i would support, and that does put me probably out of the mainstream of most conservatives, or a path to legalization, a path to residency of some kind. >> ron reagan, read the tea leaves for me. he seems more hardened now in his resolve against a path towards citizenship. you'd expect the reverse, i think, given the direction of his own party in the last couple weeks and months.
. >> okay. and what happened to the house? >> uh, the bedroom floor just collapsed and my brother-in-law is in there. he's underneath the house. >> okay. hold on one second. let me connect you to ems, okay? >> okay. >> now, the first responders -- the first responders that got here, the first responder that actually got into the house pulled jeremy out, the brother, because he was down there with a shovel trying to dig his brother out. pulled him out. they got everybody else out of the house and it was immediately deemed unsafe. erin, no one has been back inside since. >> john, i know that there are -- there's been sinkholes in many places around this country, but also in the state of florida. you've covered stories like this before. but how extraordinary is this situation? >> reporter: this one is very extraordinary for a couple of reasons. yeah, there are sinkholes all over. florida is built on literally 3,000 feet of limestone, which at any time can become very permeable and then a sinkhole can open up. what's happened here is they had a collapse, then another collapse. the walls are
alarming distance. when we're talking about drones in terms of the privacy the laws haven't caught up with technolo technology. >> reporter: right. >> how they might affect air traffic. are there laws in place about how high they can go and whether or not they can be close to airports what distance away from an airport they need to be? >> reporter: there are regulations in place. they haven't caught up with the technology and of course the number of these unmanned vehicles that are out there now and the varied types of them. according to regulations flying unmanned aerial vehicles is illegal for commercial purposes, most commercial purposes. you can fly remote-controlled planes up to 400 feet in the air according to faa. if you come within three miles of an airport you have to let the air traffic controllers know about that. those are some loose regulations on these things. a lot of those are not caught up with just the sheer volume of these things in the air these days and just what they're able to do. >> amazing, new technology. kind of scary. brian todd for us. you can watch brian
, they are in a shadowy industry. these are not law abiding citizens coming forth as you know. a lot of money changes hands in these things you can bribe criminals to stay anything. according to the "the washington post" today. that's exactly what happened some woman make charges against menendez who denied having anything to could with prostitutes nameless, faceless, anonymous through right wing blogs drove into the mainstream a story absolutely false that these were smears that began during my election process. and that increasingly become obvious that that is what they were. smears in appear attempt to effect the results of an election. now there is another wrinkle to the situation. joining us from washington tucker carlson the editor of the daily caller first broke the menendez story. rather complicated and i want to walk through this with you. i have a lot of trouble with the prostitution angle of this story because you put forth some allegations but you don't have a name attached to them. you know, it's an anonymous source. you know what this world is. they will say anything for money. there mi
